September meeting: Equipment Night

Our next meeting opens the autumn season with our usual Equipment Night. This is often useful for anyone interested in buying binoculars, telescopes or cameras as there will be a variety of equipment in the hall to get your hands on and talk to the owners about the pros and cons.

The meeting starts at 7.30pm on Tuesday 27th September and will be in the normal location (St Joseph's church hall in Cockermouth).

Following the news updates on space travel and astronomy we will have a series of short discussions about a variety of equipment including solar telescopes, beginners scopes, binoculars and more advanced computerised telescopes and cameras.

If you are a CAS member please bring your equipment down to show.

If you are interested in advice on what to buy please come and see what we have, including equipment owned by the society and available for loan to members.

And finally, if you have bought a telescope and need advice on how to set it up and get the most from it then please bring it down so we can help you get to grips with it.

See you on Tuesday!
